   Most likely they are 1/16" hex.

   No need to buy a tool. They drill out really easy but you can also
   simply punch them out. There are no nuts on the back. The screws
   bite directly into the fiberglass PCB. Mine were T-16 but many
   people report they are hex not torx. Maybe it depends on what kind
   of screw they had around the day it was built.
